Scag I think were saying the same thing. I believe there is a big trend toward tracked units and the salesman are trying to sell machines and are not giving the best advice or they don't know any better themselves. My CASE dealer is taking a CAT 216 and a Deere 325 on trade toward a TK140. You want to know what this guy does? He runs a crushing operation. I mentioned to the sales guy "why does a rock crusher want a tracked skid steer"? I said the upkeep on that machine will be very high. Response "thats want he wants" He wants the ability to climb up on the pile. On a side note the 300 series Deere doesn't sound like it runs much better than the 200 series at least in this case. Deere has given him two machines (he bought the first one) to get him one that runs. He has finally had enough. Should be interesting to see what kind of life he gets out of his tracks.
